What is Educational Talent Search?

The Educational Talent Search (ETS) program at ANC is funded by the U.S. Department of Education for the purpose of increasing the number of youth from disadvantaged backgrounds who complete high school and enroll in and complete their postsecondary education.  The ETS program works with students in grades 6-12.  ETS also encourages individuals who have no completed education programs at the secondary or postsecondary level to enter or reenter and complete postsecondary education.  All services are provided free of charge to participants who meet the eligibility requirements.
